3-year-old video of giant snake opening door goes viral
"Julius Escaping" Vimeo user: Jenner
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -
After three years a video called "Julius Escaping" has gone viral.
The video features a 16-foot albino Burmese python opening a door all by herself.
The video was posted by Vimeo user Jenner Miemietz.
"This is why we keep doors locked with her around," Jenner posted.
Jenner explained the incidents sometimes took place at 1 a.m.
Since the video, Julius was humanely euthanized in early 2012. She had been battling a systemic infection for over a year.
CBS Atlanta reached out to Miemietz.
Q: Jenner, what do you think about all the attention your video is getting?
A: Frankly, it's a bit overwhelming to have a deceased pet suddenly in the limelight. It's bringing back plenty of fond memories though. Julius was an incredible python, even by python standards. Calm and patient, yet charming and deliciously clever. Initially a rescue animal, she became a big part of my life for a decade., even flying first class when we moved to Germany.
Q: What do you want people to know about albino Burmese pythons?
A: The most important thing to say about Burmese pythons is that one must truly be prepared for such an animal. This is not a small pet. This is not necessarily a friendly pet. This can indeed be a dangerous pet. I would recommend that anyone considering owning a snake like this really do their research.
